Mancini's Azzurri take on physical Ukrainian side in a friendly after a tough start to their UEFA Nations League campaign on their way to trying to qualify for a major tournament since 2016

- Italy vs Ukraine -

Both Italy and Ukraine will have a short break from their UEFA Nations League campaigns as they face off in an international friendly on Wednesday night at the Luigi Ferraris Stadium in Genoa.

The Italians have made a slow start to their League A Group 3 campaign having drawn their opening game against Poland before suffering a 1-0 defeat to Portugal in their last match, already seemingly in a slight spot of bother.

ITALY are determined to get their first win since May as they take on Ukraine in a friendly.

With a draw and a defeat in the UEFA Nations League, this friendly against Ukraine will not be much easier for Italy considering that the Ukrainians have already won their last two games.

Team News

Ukraine will be traveling to Italy with their squad fully fit and ready.

They offer a very strong and robust midfield where the likes of Taras Stepanenko play a key role in the team.

The pace is another strong weapon in Ukraine’s arsenal as they have forwards like Yevhen Konoplyanka, Marlos and West Ham summer signing, Andriy Yarmolenko.

Italy, on the other hand, will be using their strong Juventus centre-back pairing of Leonardo Bonucci and Giorgio Chiellini to combat the offensive talent from Ukraine.

Chelsea’s Jorginho plays a key role for club and country spraying passes all around the pitch to keep hold of the possession.

It will also be interesting to see how well Roberto Mancini and forward Mario Balotelli get along if he is called upon after their heated time together at Manchester City back in 2013.

After initially being called up, Danilo D'Ambrosio, Patrick Cutrone and Alessio Romagnoli have all since been withdrawn through injury, meaning Cristiano Piccini and Lorenzo Tonelli have been drafted in as replacements.

Roberto Mancini also gave call-ups to Inter defender Inter duo Roberto Gagliardini and rather surprisingly to Toronto FC forward Sebastian Giovinco - who last played for his country in 2015.

Predicted Lineups

Italy (4-3-3):Donnarumma; Emerson, Bonucci, Chiellini, Criscito; Verratti, Jorginho, Bonaventura; Insigne, Immobile, Bernardeschi. 

Ukraine (4-2-3-1): Pyatov; Karavaev, Rakitskiy, Krivtsov, Matvienko; Stepanenko, Malinovskyi; Yarmolenko, Marlos, Konoplyanka; Yaremchuk.
